Impressive but what do the chances vs goals scored look like?

No Chesterfield or Halifax in that list.

Their chances to converted goals ratio is why they are 1 and 2 in this league - they have established strikers regularly scoring with efficiency.

They also both have mean defences , so 1-0 wins bring the same 3 points as huge score victories !!

It just shows that we need to find the next Amond or Connell from somewhere, or loan in a younger rough diamond, hoping for that player to click immediately.

We certainly won't be shelling out £250,000 and breaking a salary cap within the club.

It’s not as simple as that though, do we create those chances because we don’t have a striker? Is it from Clifton or fox coming from midfield or the wingers creating opportunities? Or are the changes from McAtee creating something for himself? We also create a fair few ‘chances’ for the defenders from set pieces. We’d still do that with or without a n n n n n n nine.

I’m not saying that we don’t need a striker, we evidently do but I don’t think it’s as simple as we’d score loads of the chances created with one. It relies on that striker being in the right place to score that chance or that chance even coming to that striker.

Fair points but the reality of the situation is we don't have someone who regularly puts away their chances, which this stat clearly shows. Would we be better off with a player who had a higher conversion rate than our existing players even if that meant we create less chances overall?  

I'd say the answer is a highly likely yes we would be higher than ninth in the league as we've lost most of our games by very small one goal margins.

While I don't dispute that the squad need an extra striker to give Taylor a breather, would we risk changing the shape or dropping Taylor to accommodate them in our first choice line up?

Going two up top with Taylor + AN Other makes it difficult to accommodate McAtee in his most effective position, replacing Taylor with AN Other you probably trade Taylor's remarkable ability to control and lay off the ball.for a bit more mobility and he's not a shabby finisher either.

I think if we had a bit more quality and athleticism at left back/wing-back, you could potentially move to a 5-3-2, with three centre halves, attacking wing-backs, two in the middle with McAtee just behind a front two of Taylor and A.N.Other.


Crocombe

Longe-King     Waterfall     Pearson

Efete              Left wing-back

Clifton     Fox

McAtee

Taylor    No.9



But that’s obviously complete fantasy at the minute. You’re then needing two high-quality signings at LB and up top, you lose a lot of the attacking threat we have in Sousa and JMD as well as all the width in the attacking third. Unless, of course, you’ve got a mobile no.9 who can pull into wide positions leaving Taylor in the middle, but then what’s the point in having a goal scorer if he’s going to spend all his time outside the box?

Who’d be a football manager eh? Not me.
